We are delighted to announce that Alzheimer's Society has been chosen by our staff as the firm's charity of the year for 2014. We are looking forward to working with the team at Alzheimer's Society and to raising as much money as possible through a wide variety of fundraising initiatives.
Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK and numbers are set to rise to one million by 2021. The society provides a network of local support services for those affected by dementia, including day care and home care, a help line and numerous factsheets.
Importantly, the society invests substantially in a research programme that aims to improve the quality of life for people with dementia by tackling questions related to the causes of dementia, investigating good practice in care and treatment, and pursuing a cure.
